With the increasing complexity of cyber-attacks, small and medium-sized organizations are facing greater risks of abuse and other forms of cyber threats. Vulnerable information systems within the organization can lead to serious consequences for the business, such as leaking sensitive information, financial losses, and significant damage to the organization's reputation. Without proper protection, organizations are exposed to significant risks that can put them in difficult situations and cause severe damage.
Owners of small and medium-sized organizations usually think that they are not an interesting target for cybercriminals, but it turns out to be the opposite. Since large organizations devote a significant amount of resources to cybersecurity, small and medium-sized businesses become an easier target for attacks.
It is necessary to provide a comprehensive solution that guarantees the protection of the organization's data and systems while not limiting productivity. Microsoft 365 Business Premium is precisely such a solution. It offers a range of security features that can help prevent common cyber threats and safeguard the organization from unwanted consequences.
Microsoft 365 Business Premium is a cloud service that includes productive tools like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, but today we will focus on the security management functionalities in more detail. These functionalities include:
Advanced Threat Protection (ATP)
Considering that viruses and other types of malicious software can be hidden in email traffic, this feature can prevent personal information leakage. ATP scans and filters emails, blocks malicious links and applications that may cause problems in the organization's system. For example, if an employee receives an email with a link to a website that appears to be from their bank but is actually a phishing attack, ATP will block it before it causes any problems.
Data Loss Prevention (DLP)
This functionality can prevent the unauthorized sharing of sensitive information such as credit card details, financial reports, customer data, and others. This can be very useful for organizations that deal with sensitive data. For example, if an employee attempts to send an email containing a financial report, DLP will prevent the email from being sent if the organization's policies do not allow the sharing of such information.
Identity and Access Management
One of the important features of Microsoft 365 Business Premium is to ensure the security of the organization's information system by offering multi-factor authentication and conditional access policies. This means that access to the organization's information and applications can only be granted to certain users depending on their role or location. For example, if an employee who is working remotely wants to access the company's financial information, the system will ask for additional authentication before granting access.
Moreover, Device Management in Microsoft 365 Business Premium offers functionalities for managing computer and mobile devices. For instance, we can utilize Device Management to deploy necessary applications and configure settings for a new employee who has joined the company. Furthermore, we can use Device Management to impose various policies for employees' mobile devices, block lost or stolen devices, and enforce password requirements for accessing them. If an employee loses their mobile device, we can leverage Device Management to prevent access to information from that device, as well as to erase all corporate data.
Microsoft 365 Business Premium is one of the most comprehensive and powerful tools for managing small and medium-sized businesses currently available. From device settings to data protection and organization information, this solution provides everything you need for effective business management. The features of Microsoft 365 Business Premium not only make your employees' work easier, but also guarantee a higher level of security and data protection for your organization. By using Microsoft 365 Business Premium, your business can grow faster and be more efficient while ensuring a high level of data protection. Try it today and see for yourself how useful it can be for your business.
